Hoboken Tacos Coming Soon to 98 Willow Ave in Hoboken

Thanks to reader TheBankRobber for this tip: Hoboken Tacos is coming to 98 Willow Avenue in Hoboken soon. Not much more is known at this point but the question of the day is with the Taco Truck nearby is there enough demand for tacos in Hoboken? Perhaps the new place will carve out a new niche in Hoboken and tacos won’t go the over-saturated route of falafel in town.

Flacoz Tacoz is a Legit Contender for the Hoboken Taco Crown

Look out Taco Truck, Flacoz Tacoz is the real deal!

Serving “Authentic and Contemporary Mexican Cuisine” Flacoz Tacos has a wide variety of tacos, burritos, quesadillas, dinner platters as well as some awesome cinnamon churros for you to indulge upon.

These aren’t small tacos either in fact the are just the right size. Not to small and not so enormous that everything falls out of it as you try to bite into it.

When I tell you Flacoz Tacos was nothing short of amazing, I mean it. Everything was so very flavorful. For my first time, I wanted to keep it simple, one pork Carnita taco and one Carne Asada taco. The pork was so incredibly savory and juicy writing this right now makes me crave another one right this very second. The Carne Asada Steak was just tender enough and simply delicious.

Another huge bonus is that this place isn’t expensive either, two tacos, some cinnamon churros and a Mexican fruit punch soda cost me just over 10 bucks.

We are really looking forward to coming back and checking out some of the other items on the menu.

Outside the Square — Rosa Mexicano

Filed under: Outside of Hoboken,Restaurants — Tags: — TheBoken @ 1:31 AM

The Boken recently made a trip back to their old stomping grounds of Bergen County to meet up with some friends for dinner at Rosa Mexicana in the River Side Square Mall.  Located on Route 4 in Hackensack, only 25 minutes from Hoboken, this mall offers top notch shopping and boasts some big time restaurants which includes McCormick & Schmick’s, Rosa Mexicana, P.F. Chang’s China Bistro, Cheese Cake Factory, Houston’s, Maggiano’s Little Italy, Thai Chef and Morton’s Steak House.

We got to Hackensack 45 minutes early and took a walk around the mall, working up an appetite for our dinner. Then we headed to Rosa for some Mexican food that was as good as we remembered.

Rosa Mexicano serves real Mexican food, not Tex-Mex or Cal-Tex. So don’t be surprised if you need to take a few more minutes with the menu than usual. We always start our meal with the guacamole. Having been to different locations plenty of times in NYC, and now in Jersey, we can proudly state that they make the best guacamole. They make it at your table in a big stone pestle with avocados, jalapeñoes, tomatoes, onions and other good things.  We order it medium.

Also to round out our appetizers we order Queso Fundido (which we’ve so appropriately nicknamed skillet of death), which is melted chihuahua cheese with crumbled chorizo sausage, cilantro,and rajas (slow cooked Mexican peppers). It’s heaven in a skillet.

After munching on these apps, chips and tortillas, and downing a couple margaritas, there’s barely enough room left in our stomach for a heavy Mexican entree. That’s why we split my favorite – the Budín de Pollo or Chicken Tortilla Pie. It’s baked soft corn tortillas filled with pulled chicken, Chihuahua cheese and roasted Mexican peppers, served with poblano cream sauce.

Whether at one of the various NYC locations, or outside the Hoboken Square for a suburban retreat, we highly recommend checking out Rosa Mexicano.

Classic Mexican at Charritos

Filed under: Restaurants — Tags: , , , — TheBoken @ 2:43 AM

Small, cozy and delicious are the three words that come to my mind when we think of Los Charritos Mexican Restaurant located at 121 Washington Street.  With only 8-10 small tables inside and no reservations Charrito’s is a hard seat to get.

A very large perk is the option to bring in your own liquor.  Margarita’s (frozen or rocks) will be made with your tequila for a minimal price for the mixer and juices.

As we always do when we eat Mexican, we start our meal with guacamole and chips.  The table side service was a nice touch and the home made tortillas are a must for the extra two dollars.  Following the guacamole were our entrees.  My staple is the chicken and steak fajita’s and it met my standards.  The sizzling grill pan came loaded with peppers and onions topped with perfectly cooked steak and seasoned chicken.  The fajita was served with rice and refried beans along with their homemade tortillas to make my own wraps!

Another Mexican staple is the chicken and cheese quesadilla.  Thick and extremely filling the quesadilla was delicious and surpassed our standards.

The service was outstanding but be prepared for the food as it comes out quick. 
Charritos also has a sister restaurant located at 1024 Washington Street which is a bit larger and also BYOB.

Enjoy.
